It is ludicrous that someone has to defend free speech, especially on a college campus.

Rutgers University president Robert Bachi is calling on his university to stand up for free speech after a student group hosted controversial speaker and Breitbart editor Milo Yiannopoulos.

“While I will not defend the content of every opinion expressed by every member of our academic community, or of speakers who we invite to our campus, I will defend their right to speak freely,”Bachi wrote in a statement Monday. “That freedom is fundamental to our university, our society, and our nation.”
